Attend Aortic Summit at VAM 2017


This year’s Vascular Annual Meeting includes an important final-day summit on a number of factors in thoracoabdominal aneurysms and aortic disease.

The Society of Thoracic Surgeons is co-hosting the SVS/STS Summit, “Advances and Controversies in the Management of Complex Thoracoabdominal Aneurysmal Disease and Type B Aortic Dissection,” set for 1:30 to 5:15 p.m. Saturday, June 3.

Attendeeswill learn the technical aspects of both open and endovascular repair of thoracoabdominal aneurysms, to compare and contrast options for preservation of spinal cord function and identify current and future treatment options in the arena of Thoracic Endovascular Aneurysm Repair (TEVAR), focusing on aortic dissection.

The summit includes:

  • A debate on the merits of medical versus endovascular treatment of uncomplicated dissections
  • Training future cardiovascular surgeons to manage complex aortic disease
  • Why thoracic and vascular surgeons will need to work together as open and endovascular experts to manage complex aortic disease
